Morning Child and Other Stories | Gardner Dozois
1 post | 1 reading
A collection of award-winning science fiction written by two-time Nebula award winner, Gardner Dozois. Here youll find Dozois short stories "Morning Child" and _The Peacemaker,Ó both winners of the Nebula for best science fiction short story. Also includes Dozois classics "A Dream at Noonday," "Chains of the Sea," "The Hanging Curve," "The Bride" (with Jack Dann), and "Ancestral Voices" (with Michael Swanwick). From the introduction: The stories in this collection were published between 1970 and 2003, and thus represent a considerable chunk, perhaps a majority share, of not only my career but my life. . .when some critic asks me what was in my mind when I came up with a certain trope in one of those stories, or what some bit of symbolism really means, why I chose some word or image instead of another, or sometimes even just what the specific inspiration for a story was, often I just cant tell him¾Im not that kid anymore. . .So, perhaps its an odd way to review your career, by the places where youve lived. Probably not very satisfactory to the critics. The most disgruntled among them will just have to get that time-machine and go back and ask that bright-eyed young twenty-year-old kid about his work. If you see him, say hi for me. Gardner Dozois is known for his beautiful evocation of setting and emotional intensity within a truly alien and often austere vision of the future. He is a science fiction master of the first order¾a fact fully on display in this outstanding collection. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). _Lyric, haunting, heartbreaking¾this is science fiction at its best.Ó¾George R.R. Martin Science Fiction Hall of Fame Inductee Gardner Dozois is the winner of two Nebula awards for fiction. _My generation of writers has produced relatively few authentic masters of the short form. Gardner Dozois is one of them.Ó¾William Gibson

Another doozy of a story selection from Levar Burton and a perfect pick for my #audiowalk home from doing errands with the kid this morning. Can‘t wait to read more by Gardner Dozois, including this collection! #TBR

twohectobooks Sometimes when I listen to this podcast his voice is so soothing that I just zone out completely. Happened when I listened to this story, sadly. 1mo
lauren.lerner I can‘t tell you how many times I‘ve had to go back to listen to something again because I‘ve gotten caught up in relaxing with Levar‘s voice, @twohectobooks — I‘m glad I‘m not the only one!! As a kid, I fell asleep to audiobooks for over a decade; if my husband were amenable, I‘d do it with this podcast now! 1mo
